When was the AES released?
DarakuTenshi
I'm finding conflicting information that I'm hoping to get a correct answer. I'm wondering when the Neo-Geo AES was released. I'm finding places that say it was released in 1990 where as games for the AES were not released until 1991.

The only thing I can think of is the MVS counterparts were in arcades in 1990 but the home release did not happen until 1991.

Does anyone have factual information on this? If possible I'd also like a source.

. Actually the aes has been release on nov of 1990 in the u.s market place but in Europe I think it was happen some time of 1991. Also the mvs cabinet as I remember playing it was release in the same time Italy hold world cup 1990

So the AES beat Nintendo to the US market for the 16-bit era?

NEO-GEO man
It was in Japan prior to anywhere else too.

Neo-geo.com had a fairly extensive thread on this matter (had scans of a promotional listing and everything), and IIRC (though I probably don't), what they found is that the rentable home units did launch in 1990, but the AES wasn't available as a proper consumer product 'till July 1 1991, in Japan.

However, the google site search isn't too helpful so the closest thing I could find was this post, by one of the thread's participant.
